The Winsham Archives

Over the years people have loaned old documents to the Web Museum for the purpose of recording them, with the purpose of how things were done a long time ago, before the advent of the digital age. Some also give a reminder of the effect of inflation over the years!

Every Museum needs a place to put a mountain of stuff that comes its way, but although valuable in its way, does not often attract a lot of interest. Winsham Web Museum is no exception and this area is devoted to the storage of documents and records hat may have interest to some, especially future generations.
